On May 23rd, Creative Arts Academy students and beyond will be taking the stage for a night to showcase their passions and talents. This cumulative lineup of performances is a way for Sun Valley Community School’s aspiring artists to conclude their school year in a creative, inspiring way.
Sophie Harder, class of ‘20, says, “Creative Arts night is such an amazing opportunity for students to share a piece of themselves with an audience, and I strongly believe that this year is going to be incredible on all ends.”
Performances include a piano piece by Ella Kopplin, monologues from Julia Ott, an original song by Sophie Harder, a one act play starring Bella Maurtua and Jasper Mott, among many other student led performances which should be looked forward to. In fact, this is the biggest turnout there has ever been for Creative Arts Night, in terms of student participation!
Over the course of the past year, Gabe Delgado ‘21 has been working hard to write, produce, perfect, and star in his own adaptation of the acclaimed Broadway Musical, Dear Evan Hansen. Reflecting on his previous involvement in SVCS theater, Gabe says:
“Creative Arts Night is a night to showcase the talented artists Sun Valley Community School has to offer. For most of my theatrical career, I have focused on the technical side of productions. I could not think of a better way to make a return to acting than with a piece that means so much to me. Creative Arts Night gives students a platform to showcase their talent, and I cannot wait to see what my fellow artists have to share.”
Rehearsals for the short Dear Evan Hansen adaptation have already been in progress for the past two weeks, and Gabe and the cast look forward to presenting it to the school community. Mark your calendars for May 23rd, as Upper School Creative Arts Night is bound to be a good time!
